Choices. Choices. Choices.

July 31, 2017


While, most of these blogs will be about exercise (you know running, yoga, cross training etc.), today we are going to talk about a different form of exercise. The exercise of choice.

Choice is defined as
 “an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities.”

We wanted to talk about choice today because like you, we have been watching and enjoying the Sweat with Your Sole Speaker Series. But aside from watching we have also been taking note of the questions. We see how committed each of you is to live your best life, and to being as healthy as possible. And we all know that being healthy comes down, most notably, to our day by day--moment by moment choices. Those choices, however, are not limited to what we eat or how we exercise, but also extend to what we watch, think about, and talk about.

Sometimes our choices are so subconscious and “knee-jerk,” that we aren’t really aware of them. But, here’s a hint. You can tell what you choose and what you have chosen by how your life looks currently.

Everything from the food in your fridge, to the clothes in your closet, to the contacts in your phone are a result of the choices that you have made. The question is: Are you happy with what you have chosen?

This week’s Facebook Live Speaker, Dr. Crystal Jones will talk more about this on Thursday, but in the meantime we wanted to give you few simple things to consider when making choices for yourself.
Check out this cool info-graphic for a few tips on how to make good choices.

Great article!! Very motivating and very true! I feel we are the only obstacles to our own happiness. The more people realize it, the greater are the chances that it’ll change for better!!

Referring to the infographic – I read once ’Don’t procrastinate for a single moment, as that moment spirals into minutes, hours & days very easily’. Definitely true, great article

I can relate to this. Choices are something that we rarely think about but probably should more often than not. The consequences show in our everyday lives and we don’t even realize it. Summer is always hard for me. I either go hard in the break and break my previous records or I just don’t run at all because I get caught up in other stuff. Maybe I should start saying that I chose not to run because I didn’t prioritize right.
